We have a lovely theme for our new challenge this fortnight at Time Out … ‘Nature’ with the optional twist of animals … so many possibilities! Here’s my non twist card …
I stamped the Uniko butterfly and Avery Elle sentiment onto a white card panel in Versamark and heat embossed both with Ranger Liquid Platinum EP. The butterfly was watercoloured with Distress Inks (Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and had shimmer added with Wink of Stella (because what well dressed butterfly goes anywhere without a hint of sparkle?). After masking the butterfly, I spritzed the ink that was left on my craft mat with a little water, picked up each colour with a paint brush and delicately splattered the panel. Strips of raspberry cardstock were adhered to each side of my card base and I popped the panel up over them on fun foam (a la Jennifer McGuire!). Want to get a closer look at that subtle sparkle?
Feel like giving your creative muscles a work out? We’d love to have you join us! How about letting your imagination roam … and seeing where ‘Nature’ takes you? This fortnight, we’re sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays … if you use the optional twist of animals on your card, you’ll be in with a random chance of winning a $25 gift card … and as usual, our overall winner (as chosen by the DT) will be invited to be a Guest Designer for a future challenge. All the details are over on the Time Out blog, along with heaps of inspiration from our lovely and talented Guest Designer, Barb Ghig from Barb’s Studio Creations and our amazing DT! Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!
